Kardashian backlash leads to boycott petition
The reality show unit has received a backlash after Kim’s lavish televised nuptials resulted in a divorce filing just 72 days later.
There have been claims that her marriage to Kris Humphries was a “hoax” and now several organisations are petitioning to get the 31-year-old, her sisters Khloé and Kourtney and the matriarch Kris Jenner off television screens.
“In a grass roots effort, we have collected [thousands of] signatures for a petition asking E! Entertainment to remove the Kardashian suite of shows from their programming,” Cyndy Snider, organiser of one of the petitions said in a statement originally published on Yahoo TV.
“We feel that these shows are mostly staged and place an emphasis on vanity, greed, promiscuity, vulgarity and over-the-top conspicuous consumption.”
The No More Kardashian lobby on GoPetition has received over 10,000 signatures so far. The family have the Keeping Up With The Kardashians show as well as Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Khloe & Lamar and other productions in the works.
“While some may have begun watching the spectacle as mindless entertainment or as a sort of ‘reality satire,’ it is a sad truth that many young people are looking up to this family and are modeling their appearance and behaviour after them,” Snider added.
“I’ll remind you here that the Kardashian family fame largely started with a ‘leaked’ sex tape.”
Kim has denied that her wedding was stage and said she would “never marry for a TV show or for money.”
